      It was simple since the game already has this song in the Birdman levels so they just needed to do a voiceover

      @Donkeykong 260 They’re really bringing it. The Pokémon stadium games, the Mario Party trilogy, and Goldeneye. My next guess for the next ring of games are, Donkey Kong 64, Diddy Kong Racing, Banjo Tooie, and Smash 64.

    As someone who grew up with this game, I was constantly hoping that Nintendo would release PilotWings 64 (and Mario Party 3) on Virtual Console for the Wii, and later the Wii U, but it never happened. I'm glad to finally see this game get some sort of release, and I hope more people get to experience this game. At the very least, listen to the soundtrack. Dan Hess did an amazing job with it, and it deserves to be appreciated by more people!

    • KayFiOS
      KayFiOS 19 days ago

      @GiGa BanGThe N64 emulation on Switch still has some rough patches to iron out, such as the birdman stages being nigh unplayable, but at least Nintendo has been updating the emulation. If there was a problem on the Wii or Wii U Virtual Console, Nintendo wouldn't do a damn thing!

    • GiGa BanG
      GiGa BanG 19 days ago

      Shame this one got stuck behind a paywall. Saying that though, the Wii and U emulation of N64 games weren’t the best… far from it.

    The soundtrack to Pilotwings is crazy underrated so I’m loving that this trailers concept revolves around the super groovy music. The music made this game so atmospheric. Im looking forward to soaring the skies to these smooth grooves.

    • Big Duke

      I guarantee you that everyone on the comments raving about this soundtrack are all only remembering that single piece of music used for hang gliding and misremembering that every song sounded like that.

      @KayFiOS not yet! But I released a remake of Birdman on my RU-clip channel…

    • KayFiOS
      KayFiOS Month ago +2

      It's one of my favorite soundtracks. I'm pretty sure the original composer wanted to do a remix album at one point, but I don't know if anything came of that.

    • potato
      potato Month ago +2

      there is a 3ds version.

      MAGICANT Month ago +2

      i think its due to the main development studio of the game going defunct in 2008, thats why theres no references to pilotwings 64 in smash

  • MetaGrave

    The best track in the game (Birdman) and an amazing voiceover with a fun script. I'm so happy this game is getting a chance to soar again. Pun intended.

    I love Pilotwings 64 so much. It definitely got a lot of playtime from me as a kid. Kudos to Nintendo for adding it, but also for using the Birdman song and this stellar voiceover to promote it’s upcoming release.

  • James Jackson KFP #999

    This was one of my favorite Nintendo 64 games as a teenager. It looks like Nintendo did a really nice job of polishing it up in the emulator for HD! I'm very excited to get back into Pilotwings 64 for the first time in a long time.

    This trailer (is hilarious and) renews my hope for the direction of Nintendo's corporate upper management from being entirely *based* (specific wording, _based_ ) in monetary value of products, rather than fun and creativity.
    I watched a lot of Nintendo trailers and read lots of information that I've put such an analysis together. :)

    Pilotwings is easily a core gaming memory for so many, N64s launch into the world was a graphical powerhouse. SO fun to be able to boot this up with my little ones on the switch.

    RedZeshinX Month ago +1

    I remember playing this game with my Dad and brother as a kid back in the 90's. We wouldn't even play the objectives, we would just give ourselves random goofy challenges flying around in the gyrocopter, tricks like flying close to the water under a series of bridges, landing on top of skyscrapers and oil rigs, or a long and tricky flight path across America zooming through gas station signs, bridge arches and narrow canyons. Really loved playing in the secret Bird Man levels, too, very peaceful opportunity to fly around with bird wings exploring all the corners of the map. Was my first experience with an open world where you could ignore the rules and just go off doing silly things, just great childhood memories.

    This was the first N64 game I rented from Blockbuster's, partly because I couldn't afford to buy a game after purchasing the console 🤣 also shooting Mario and turning him into Wario was the 1st Easter Egg I ever found in a video game. Looking forward to playing it again.

    Best entry in the series. Amazing jazzy soundtrack and fun original characters as the pilots. The 3DS game sucked a lot of the personality out of it for me.
    If you're new to this game definitely check it out, it holds up very well even today.

    I love how they make new trailers for old n64 games coming to switch instead of using the old trailers or just showing some gameplay while saying "This game will be available on Nintendo Switch Online+ Expansion Pack!" And these reimagining of trailers end up becoming better than some trailers of 1st party games
